Temple Chai Early Childhood Center imparts a warm and welcoming environment that nurtures caring and creative children. We strive to integrate Judaism and child-centered learning into the entirety of our program, while providing a safe and stimulating environment that fosters curiosity. Children are encouraged to construct their own knowledge through play and investigation. We believe that education is a process brought on by the child's interaction within the world around them. It is through playing in this world that children are stimulated to wonder, explore, experiment and discover using their own unique learning styles and interests. We approach our work with all children, Infants to Pre-K, through Jewish values and lenses. We welcome you to our Temple Chai community with open arms and open hearts!

We approach early childhood education with a play-based, child-led learning philosophy with inspiration from the Reggio Emilia Approach.
“Children are naturally curious about everything around them. They have theories and hypotheses that they are constantly testing through exploration and experimentation. We can learn much from children’s curiosity that can be brought into our own lives. Curiosity about the way we work and teach will lead to experimentation. Experimentation will lead to innovation, and innovation can lead to new and powerful discoveries. Knowledge is not a passive ideal. It is not a lofty, academic concept. It is practical, it is hands-on, and it is accessible to anyone, of any age, who chooses to engage in the joy of discovery. It is up to us to create an environment — for children and adults — where the pursuit of knowledge is encouraged, honored, and celebrated."
